Best Friend

If you can start the day without caffeine 
or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches 
and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring 
people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday 
and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved 
ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take
things out on you when, through no fault 
of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame 
without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies 
and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without 
medical help.
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can do all these things,

             Then you are probably 
               'The family dog'
